The video depicts clowns engaging in a Fight Club type scenario, battling in a nondescript industrial space. As the video plays out, it turns into more of a battle royal. They pull violent pranks on each other while trying to be the last clown standing. Heads being knocked off and smashed in are some of the tactics applied. Things get especially interesting when a mime crashes the party.
In an interview with Mashable, singer Dexter Holland talked about how the video concept came together:
The concept was really Josh's . Fortunately he was a very collaborative guy and we got to work on it together, but really, nearly all of it came out of his head. It's pretty hard to resist when somebody suggests an idea like Fight Club, but with clowns!
"Coming For You" is available as a digital download on Amazon.
